Llandovery is a community and market town in Carmarthenshire, Wales, lying on the River Tywi and the A40/A483 roads.The town is served by Llandovery railway station, where there is a park and ride to Llanelli and Shrewsbury via the Heart of Wales Line. Llandovery — a corruption of Llanymddyfri, meaning Llan ymlith y dyfroedd — owes its name to its position between the River Tywi and the Afon Brân just upstream of their confluence. A smaller watercourse, the Bawddwr, runs through and under the town. Llandovery is twinned with Pluguffan in Brittany, France.HistoryRoman legacyThe Roman fort at Llanfair Hill to the northeast of the modern town around was known to the Romans as Alabum. It was built around AD 50 to 60 as part of their strategy for the conquest of Wales. A Roman road heads across Mynydd Bach Trecastell to the southeast of Llandovery bound for the fort of Brecon Gaer. Another heads down the Towy valley for Carmarthen whilst a third makes for the goldmines at Dolaucothi.Use our United Kingdom driving holiday planner to arrange your visit to Llandovery and any other destinations in United Kingdom that take your fancy.
